Year 5 Maths
By Year 5, your child should be confident with one- and two-step problems and using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and they should be able to decide on the best way of solving a problem. There is still a focus on times tables, as well as fractions and decimal work.
Rounding speed challenges, zoo subtraction problems, spotting square numbers and a little bit of pizza maths... it's all included in the Year 5 Maths Booster pack, designed to help your child practise and revise the key KS2 maths skills they've learned at school.
The Year 5 Maths Learning Journey programme covers all the core areas of learning your child will be expected to master in maths during Year 5. Work through the 40 worksheets that comprise each programme in order, or pick those that cover topics you know your child is struggling with, and by the end of the school year you can be sure your child's learning is on track.
Decimals, negative numbers, equivalent fractions and nets of 3D shapes... does your child find any Y5 maths topics tricky? Our Y5 Maths Progress checks, written by a teacher, are designed to help you see how your child is progressing and identify any areas where they need some extra practice.
Each term’s maths test consists of 20 questions and a total of 20 marks. The first 5 questions are mental maths questions (allow your child 10 seconds for each one) and the next 15 are written questions (allow your child as much time as they like to do these questions).
Maths is a core skill within the primary national curriculum. As we use maths every day, it is also a vital skill for life. But, some of us still dread our child coming home and asking for help with their maths homework, as learning methods and terminology are sometimes different from how we were taught.
If this sounds like you, you'll find the Maths Homework Helper ebook an immensely useful resource for two reasons. Firstly, it collates the main topics your child will need to know. Secondly, it acts as a refresher course for you, so you can revisit each topic and understand just what your child is learning during class time. It covers the crucial topics of numbers, using numbers, measures, shape and space, and data handling, so you and your child will be able to learn, understand and use maths skills in everyday situations.
There are also helpful rules to remember, a jargon-busting guide to key maths language, plus tips and ideas to help your child continue their learning away from their text books. With Maths Homework Helper, you will never be stumped by your child's primary maths homework again!
